    James D. Reidy, I have known in excess of fifty years. A man who loved his family, dedicated to them and his occupations during his careers.4, Highly intelligent and giving of himself to humankind in his volunteer work. He was business manager of the New York State Fair and did an outstanding job at the Fair and various positions he held in his lifetime. He was one of three brothers. He will be deeply missed by his family and all that knew him well. A veteran of the US Army, WW II, a quiet man with patience. I remember well when he introduced me to Roy Clark, who was performing at the Fair. Jim knew many people from all walks of life. I ask you, God, to watch over Jim and his loving family. Margaret and I will miss you Mr. Reidy. God Bless.

    The Reidy Family: Please accept my condolences on the loos of your father and grandfather. Fondly, I recall when we were neighbors at Phelps Place and Sunrise Drive during the early 1960’s. May your periods of bereavement and grief be, mercifully, short. God bless you all.
